Just had a wonderful Sunday lunch. Service and food was great. Many thanks to Armandt our waiter. The steak au pouvre was splendid.

We very much enjoyed this restaurant on the Groot Constantia road. I had the vegetarian burger, which I remember as being very creative and tasty. The children enjoyed the chicken burgers and were very happy there. Very much recommended.

We had dinner at Pastis in Constantia last weekend and it was great. The Oxtail was outstanding and went well with the Constantia Shiraz that we drank. Well worth a visit.

On a months vineyard and restaurant visit to the Cape I did not eat at gourmet restaurants twice a day, well not often! And while in Constantia I ate at Cassis 3 times, in brief it is a friendly place set in a small row of eateries on the road leading to Groot Constania Vineyard . The menu has Italian... More

Last time I was here the menu was very basic but perhaps they have a new chef as it's quite different and more extensive. Our waitron Primrose was attentive and one of the duty managers answered all our questions on the food. I asked if there was onion in the burger and was told that there was as it help... More
